We are calling all those who would join us for a day of prayer for the art and fashion communities. We have such amazing talent and creativity represented in the fashion industry that our heart is to see its continued inspiration, creativity, and success. We know that there are excesses and negative aspects to every industry to pray against, but this day of prayer is directed towards the positive elements within the industry that contribute to a fun, happy, healthy, and fulfilling life, especially when those activities point us to God. It's a time to pray for others. It's a prayer for our artistic expression to become God's own tool of expression.
Tell us that you'll be joining us in prayer on Sunday, February 15, 2015 by filling out the form below. We'll list your family, company, or ministry on our website so that others will know you are part of the movement.
Silva Emerian (On My Shoebox)
"God is mighty in His love and constantly moving in His
beautiful creation. I pray that His Holy
Spirit would stir in the hearts of those in the art and fashion
communities. That He would be the
driving force and inspiration for their work.
That He would keep the devil's forces down and open window after window
of opportunity for His beloved children to glorify Him in this world. That we would be the light to those who are
still in darkness. That Christian
Fashion Week would catch the attention of those outside of our immediate
circles and be a worldwide movement.
That immoral and unethical practices would cease in the art and fashion
communities. That the men and women
involved in front of and behind the cameras would know their worth is not
measured by the world's standards, but that they are whole and complete and
loved in the eyes of their Creator. And
that we are each a masterpiece of His hands."
"For the Light of Jesus to shine on the good in art and
fashion and that those creations that point to
Him would be clearly seen. And
the negative out there would not."
Star Hawks (Creative Kingdom Expression Memphis)
"I just pray right now for more artists and designers to
enter into deeper intimacy w Papa God! Tht we would tap into Heaven &
release it on earth! That we would learn to co-create w the Creator of the
universe! That we would really understand what it means to be in the world but
not of it! That we would represent purity & holiness in our industry! I
pray that our creations would be anointed and heal people bc we're carriers of
the Presence of God! I pray that we would not fall under "it's all already
been done" but tap into God is always doing something NEW! I pray for
Christians to set the standard & inspire the world! I pray for creative
downloads that would inspire others an bring people into a relationship w
Jesus! I pray that the Glory of God be revealed through us!!! That we would
yield our lives for him to live His dream through us! It's so much bigger than
we could ever think or imagine. Yay God!
Jack Hall (Parentguide Media )
"My prayer is that the true follower of Christ in this
industry stand up and be counted for their gift and talent that God has given
them and not to limit their "own understanding" and to lean into God the Father for direction, ideas as a
light and not just be a follower but a true pioneer of the arts, design and
Val Demi (Worship Team Musician)
"Every good & perfect gift comes from God - that's
what James 1:17 speaks of. So in thanking Him for the talent of great design,
people are pointed to Him. To publicly declare this is a wonderful thing! I
will pray for proper influence and good role models for our youth - and the
clothing designs to back it up. Also for God to come first for Christian
artists/designers with the result of becoming salt & light in their
respective industries. (I am inspired to start designing again)"
Nereida The MakeUp Artist
"I am praying that The Lord will continue to bless each and every talented individual during CFW, and that he/she may continue to grow as an Artist/Designer and use his/her talent for The Lord. I'm praying that people's hearts and minds will open, so that they may understand the point of view of all of those involved in CFW. I am also praying that a modest point of view on fashion revolutionizes the industry in such a manner that thr impact of CFW becomes so obvious to people around world for generations to come! "

Diva Designs Makeup (Neva Durham)
"I am praying for open minds and hearts during Christian
Fashion Week, to not pre judge based on the worlds bias or views of
Christianity. To show the world, that fashion can be modest yet fun, to teach
younger generation that fashion doesnt have to be a size 1 or show every body
part to be accepted. That God loves us for who we are and right where we are, not for who we pretend to
Esther Wisdom (Ann Wilson)
"Praying that God call the Elijah Revolutionists to be
raised up to take the mountain of Celebration of Arts/Fashion. This mountain
currently releases a dark and decadent pop culture- that God will release the
Elijah Revolution tsunami onto this mountain. Celebration of Arts/Fashion will
prophesy of God and to this culture. That God will reveal and release fresh and
creative sounds, pictures and styles that the world can ultimately be in awe
of. Praying that this mountain be captured by the hearts of
youth where the enemy has been able to corrupt and thwart the destiny of entire
generations. Praying for success of talented up and coming Christian
fashion designers and industry professionals Praying for reform in worldwide
textile manufacturing practices that promote child and slave labour."

"I will be praying in the fashion communities for more fashion designers to create more creative, vivid, and chic fashions for plus size women worldwide for all ages!!!"ONE Throne Apparel (Sarah Davis)"We are a brand new urban Christian clothing brand that launched last year. Our aim is simple - creating fashionable Christian wear that glorifies the lord and sends positive messages to the masses. Urban, stylish Chritian clothing is a very under-served market and goal is to bridge the gap and give young adults stylish clothing that also allows them to share their faith while on the go! We will be praying for God to open doors for other aspiring Christian clothiing, fashion businesses to prosper in the new year and for more opportunities like the Christian Fashion Week to take off! and most importantly that God be glorified in each of our business practice and purpose!

That people will be accepting of new and innovative creative designs through art and fashion and that they remember that all things are possible to them that believe. "
Christi Ogu Photography and Design (Christi Ogu)"The specific areas that I will be primarily praying for in regards to the art and fashion communities would focus on the areas of deliverance and restoration where both affiliated members (or aspiring professionals) belonging to these industries may encounter life-changing experiences and develop personal relationships with God in hopes that the Holy Spirit will continue to lead them in their individual and group decision-makingsâ?"whether that be business practices, design processes, or life in general?"whereby ultimately leaving a positive impact.

That CFW will play a huge roll in accessing and influencing the hearts of young women everywhere, that the influence of the world will not be what steers them into anything less than what God has purposed for their precious lives.

"I will be praying for the transformation of the mind of fellow Christians and us as a whole to come to an understanding of the difference between being fashionably modest with keeping fashion in its place of priorities, and mistakingly taking fashion as what makes us who we are. With us understanding fashion as a way we can express ourselves, as the Christians we are, instead of trying to use fashion to make us who we are and therefore falling into the mindset of negative self-images."Radiantly Purposed (Jeanna Bruce)
"I am thrilled to be able to join your team in a day of prayer on February 2nd for the world of fashion. It is important that we unite as believers in the body of Christ to speak great things over the designers that make these beautiful creations for men and women. We want these designers to sense that they have an incredible gift from God to make us women and men feel like a million bucks in their originations. These talented individuals should be covered in prayer not only on this day but in days to come that they will allow God to use them in a way that will bring glory to His name. I pray that they never think that their efforts or time go unnoticed, for there is purpose in what they bring to us consumers."

"Cafe S.O.U.L. will be praying continual for the artists/designers to seek inspiration in the elements that surround them, and consumers seek new ways to express themselves.
